FOR SPARTAAAAAAAAAAAA!

FOR SEPIAAAAAAAA!...toned.

I'll wait till someone bootlegs it... or maybe see it with my dad in a couple weeks when i go home. I can't say I'm expecting much, though. Looks like a music video from a pro wrestler's debut album.

ok, so it was amazing.

I'm not in the mood to write a terribly extensive review.

but IGN's is pretty dead on with their 10/10 rating: http://movies.ign.com/articles/763/763580p1.html

300 is yet another movie based off of a comic. This time, they're tackling Frank Millers 300. Frank Miller is the man behind the Sin City comic.

300 is a story about the 300 spartans at the battle of Thermopylae. It's highly stylizised, and can't be called historic, but it's probably a really cool movie.

Haven't seen it yet, so I can't comment on its coolness other than that it looks fucking awesome from the trailers I've seen.

Also, it's adapted from a work by Frank Miller. That counts in a positive direction, even if I haven't read 300.

The movie was absolutely awesome. I had extremely high expectations for it after seeing the trailers and everything but the movie met every one. It just looked amazing.

And Rad, your understanding of a topic is not a prerequisite for a thread being created. This thread was clearly intended for people who were already interested in the movie and shouldn't have required an explanation. Why the hell should we waste our time to explain things to you when google is a much more viable and common sense solution. Next time take a bit of your time and research it before being an ass and post whoring stupid responses. I smite you daily for stupidity like this.

I never said it was or i needed it to be a prerequisite to have info about a thread. Yet, it would make a thread more accessible instead of "300."

Why the hell should you waste your time to explain things ? Well, ofcourse you could neglect that, but it'd just make it harder for people to understand what the hell you're talking about.

If i ask for more information, i don't ask for a link to google, wich should be obvious, neither should i have to deal a pesky little kid trying to tell me that looking up the number 300 was going to give me accurate information to this thread.

Maybe you should stock up on a life instead of trying to smite me, or just actually be helpful once in a while.

Rad, man. Did you completely ignore my post? You just need to read through the thread. Obviously, if people call it a movie, that should be a clue. If you need more than that, then Google it. It's what everyone else does. It saves yourself from looking annoying/bothersome, and it saves everyone else from having to post an elaborate explanation on something that was assumed to be known when the.y entered the thread.

but seriously, ok.

the battle scenes in that movie.
weren't they incredible?
they were realistic... and powerful.
and the blood was so magnificent... very much a form of art.
and the story was so incredibly simplistic... and it only made the movie -stronger

oh, and the story telling!
masterful.
very well implemented... and... gawd... there is only 1 thing that I found was awkwardly placed in the movie... the really deformed spartan who was refused to join the 300 soldiers... he was such a plot device
and it didn't even come CLOSE to harming the over-all wonder that is 300.

Love it how they try to portray the spartans as noble warriors fighting for freedom when other than vs the persians they were the brutal agressors ruling most of southern greece with an iron grip. Like they show in the start of the movie they were a warrior society ^^ Also metal music in the fighting scenes xD? Really doesnt help the setting.. but I guess as a fictious movie based on a comicbook it was good. Great CG etc =P

Title: Re: 300 - THE MOVIE
Post by: Torp v2.0 on March 26, 2007, 03:40:15 pm
Actually, those shields aren't particularly oversized. And due to the lessened mobility of wearing heavy armour, greek hoplites didn't wear too much of it.

I went to see it today with a couple of friends. Half of them thought it sucked and half of them (including me) thought it was awesome. The fighting scenes were really cool. And that means that the entire movie was really cool, since it was mostly fighting scenes xD

But yeah, really, I liked it.

Perhaps your one half should fight the other half..

But his half is outnumbered 300 to millions. They haven't a chance.

The enemy outnumber us a paltry three to one, good odds for any Greek!

We should fight them, yes... But they are girls, so it wouldn't be fair.

Not sure if this is true or not; haven't been able to find any correlating news on google but regardless its fucking hilarious:

“We had all lined up in front of the theater for about 30 minutes, and then they brought us in. I had to stand right beside these two fat, horse-faced lesbians eating each other tongues like they were making a political statement or something. So, like 30 minutes later, we end up shuffling in the theater and these bitches start bitching about having to wait when the movie is about to start and it turns out they were going to see that Jim Carrey movie 23 and they were missing it. So, the ugliest of the two just exclaims like there’s nobody there “This is the wrong fucking movie!”. I just had to do what I did next. I shouted at the top of my lungs “This is SPARTA” and kicked her in the chest, causing her to fall down about 8 steps to the floor. Most were shocked but about 80% of the theater started to cheer as I was forcibly thrown out by 2 officers. Charges are going to be pressed against me apparently, but it was worth it.”

I saw it yesterday, in english.
First thing : in french version, the credits have a crappy french rap thing as "music" (they did the same for prison break; a strange but efficient way to promote such interest-less rappers/others) instead of the original credits music (the room were I saw the movie projected the french version then the original one).
Colors are beautiful, I love those textures. This is art.
Pretty charismatic characters, Xerxes is such a bitch, Leonidas is the shit, proud, spartian, heroic, epic.
Battles are violent, damn funny sometimes. I saw a lot of clichés, but well, that give some charm to the whole thing (except the Axe style from some sequences : Leonidas in Sparta, unable to get some sleep, finaly go inside his room to get some fun with the queen. The picture when he stands outside made me think of a Axe publicity, or some cosmetic products).
And damn, there were nipples. Incredible for a non french production (... ok, I gotta go to cinema more often).

The best thing ? I was payed 3.50 € to see the movie. The cash clerck gave me back my 10€ bill. \o/

So much things to add, I loved that tribal mood in the OST, the guitars... I liked this movie. Not the best one I saw but damn, that was a good moment.

The movie is pretty kewl, but the plot was pretty crap, in terms that we all knew what will happen. I don't like movies with such straightforward endings :(

yes, the emoticon was intentional, to make the sentence emo-like.

Yeah, I loved that. It's even funnier if you imagine him saying it in the "itsa me, Mario!" voice.
